As from 4th of April 2021 all UK registered MGB’s (so long as they haven’t been significantly modified) are eligible for the DVLA’s Historic Vehicle Status (no more road fund licence to pay and MOT exempt if you choose). This is based on the build date and NOT the registration date of your MG.
As we have had a few issues where members have been in contact as a result of having issues with the DVLA over this date of build proof are offering the following –
Historic Vehicle/ build dating letter
The Club have worked with the DVLA since 2012 when they contacted us regarding a vehicles identity.
As a result we have a good relationship and they have always accepted our confirmation when it has come to identifying and ageing our vehicles.
I personally used the the attached when requesting historic status for my Jubilee 5 years ago and until now have helped a further 5 or 6 members with DVLA requests.
If you are having issues with gaining Historic status for your MGB or alternatively have another issue please let us know as we are only too happy to try and help.
If you haven’t already purchased one it would be advisable to order this letter in conjunction with our certificate of authenticity (this is also offered as part of a pack).
Please note that although we have never previously had an issue whereby the DVLA has disregarded or rejected our statements we cannot be responsible it they were to do so.
Any questions then please ask.
This is available either on its own (£8) DVLA Dating Letter
or as an addition to the welcome pack, Which includes a Certificate of Authenticity showing your MG’s build details (£25) DVLA Dating Letter + Welcome Pack
